The legendary nameplate has been brought back from history recently and from what we can see, the company did a pretty impressive job in designing a model that has to compete with already established names in the business, such as Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition. Normally, we won’t expect to see significant changes for the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer, which will represent the second production year. However, it looks like Jeep is preparing interesting novelties for the second production year. One of them should be the Trailhawk model, which will be an off-road version of this full-size SUV.
All this is just a rumor at this point, so take the Trailhawk with a reserve. On the other hand, the rest of the lineup should carry on in the same way. We are about to see a model that offers strong performance, smooth ride, spacious and well-designed interior etc. We also like the long list of standard equipment, as well as the impressive max towing capacity.
The 2023 Jeep Wagoneer should hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Jeep Wagoneer Design
Design-wise, the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer won’t be much different compared to the initial 2022 model. The overall design will remain the same, based on the same body-on-frame platform that underpins the Ram 1500. The Wagoneer benefits a lot from such a design, as it offers an impressive 10.000 pounds of max towing capacity. At the same time, the ride is very smooth and very refined, which make this SUV an excellent family hauler.
For the next year, we can hear rumors about the Trailhawk version, which would be an off-road version that comes with upgrades like locking differentials, suspension modifications, hill descent control etc. Keep in mind that the current model is already available with a couple of nice off-road upgrades, such as a two-speed transfer case, skid plates, traction control modes, all-terrain tires and similar things.
The inside of the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer definitely won’t change and that’s not a bad thing at all. We are talking about a pretty fresh model, which looks really good from the inside. We like the dashboard design, which combines attractive aesthetics with fine materials like leather and glossy plastics. Also, the overall build quality is pretty impressive, while numerous tech features make this cabin look even more upscale.
As we already mentioned, this SUV is a great family hauler. It comes with three rows of seats and we could say that even the third row is adult-friendly. The front seats are massive and supportive, while the second row also offers plenty of head and legroom.
The cargo area offers around 27.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats, 70.8 cubic feet with these seats folded, and 116.7 cubic feet of the total cargo volume. These numbers make the Wagoneer one of the most generous models in the class in this aspect. Still, Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon offer even more impressive overall cargo volume.
As we are talking about the second production year, it’s pretty much for sure that the list of standard equipment will remain largely the same in the 2023 Wagoneer. All models should come standard with goodies like tri-zone climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, a 10.1-inch touch screen, a 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster, navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, eight USB ports, satellite radio, and a nine-speaker stereo.
The list of options should include a panoramic sunroof, a 10.3-inch passenger-side touch screen, a 19-speaker stereo, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 10.1-inch displays an Amazon Fire TV etc.
When it comes to safety, all models should come standard with goodies like a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control etc.
2023 Jeep Wagoneer Engine
We presume that the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer will continue with a single powertrain option. That would be a well-known 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which comes in a combination with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The max output is rated at 392 horsepower and 404 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to ensure respectable performance. The Wagoneer accelerates quickly, while the 8-speed automatic transmission works great. Furthermore, you may count on class-leading max towing capacity, which goes up to 10.000 pounds.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, which is pretty decent for a V8-powered SUV.
2023 Jeep Wagoneer Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Jeep Wagoneer will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 69.000 dollars.
